Functional Treasures

Paul Tripp has a helpful list of diagnostic questions that help you determine what the functional treasures of your heart really are. His list was originally for pastors, so I've reworded it a bit to fit everyone.

  1. The absence of what causes you to want to give up and quit?
  2. The pursuit of what leads you to feeling over-burdened and overwhelmed?
  3. The fear of what makes you tentative and timid rather than courageous and hopeful?
  4. The craving for what makes you burn the candle at both ends until you have little left?
  5. The "need" for what robs work of its beauty and joy?
  6. The desire for what sets up tensions between work and family?
